Zen and the Art of Meditative Drumming

‘Zen and the Art of Meditative Drumming’

 

A four week workshop, exploring the links between and the benefits of, group drumming and rhythmic meditation.

Open to complete beginners aswell as more experienced drummers, John and Eoin will guide the group in finding and utilising the primal sense of rhythm, to explore the social, psychological and physiological benefits of this most ancient form of group therapy.

 

We use the Japanese Zen term ‘Mushin’ (empty mind) to describe the altered mindstate induced by rhythmic meditation, but in reality, this is far deeper-seated within the human brain than any religion or philosophy, and may bring us closer to our inner self, through wordless action, than any other activity.(It’s also great fun).

 

All drums will be provided for the workshop, but anyone wishing to bring their own may do so.

Each session will begin and end with a grounding meditation, and run for approximately 90 minutes in total.

 

Cost for the four week course is 100 euro per person.

 

Monday the 25th of September 8pm to 9.30pm
